Karaköy çay bahçesi

Rıhtım Caddesi, Karaköy

Only open in the spring and summer months, until late

On the shoreline parallel to Rıhtım Caddesi, just on the left of the Karaköy–Kadıköy port if facing the water.

Just opposite the car park and complex of Turkish meyhanes and sweet shops and just past the Karaköy–Kadıköy port is a collection of small chairs put out only during the summer months. It may not look like much, but the view of the beginning of the Golden Horn is spectacular. Grab a box of baklava from Güllüoğlu found in the complex, plonk in one of these chairs, order a çay and wish the afternoon away.
